Several developers from Criterion, the developer behind the upcoming Need For Speed: Most Wanted, recently described their experience working with the Wii U, disagreeing with naysayers who have given the Wii U a “bad rap”.
they will prove haters wrong, but the haters are too big of babies to admit when their wrong.
Well said, friend. Well said.
"NAYSAYER'S give wii-U need for speed a bad rap" its no fking good thats why it got a BAD RAP. anyone disagree has not played NFS since 3do will know the difference.................... .............................. . .............................. . ...................... simple as that. just like "THE RUN" DID SUCKED. took my ps3 version back to retail store less than 15 minutes after buy it. to much like BURNOUT and wanted NEED FOR SPEED MOST WANTED not burnout wanted.why cant any of you realize this is BURNOUT slap on title NFS CRITERION YOU SUCK!! go back to burnout and leave need for speed to a passionate developer who know the source material of need for speed.
I thought it was good fun. I spent probably a good 50hrs in the online portion. Even as an old school nfs fan I can admit taking it back to the 3do days would be a massive step backward. However I acknowledge the game had its faults - mainly lack of customization. edit: I also wished it had a narrative.
@ XURSZ are you serious being a ol school gamer as myself thought criterion MOSTWANTED, HOTPURSUIT was consider good??? what drugs you on?? give me a shot I LIKE TO FLY LIKE A Eagle toooooo. no NFS has been good since UNDERGROUND 2002 rest was craptastic.from original source material
That escalated quickly.
Underground was amazing! Carbon and (og) Most Wanted were good as well. I feel like the NFS catalog will never be complete if we don't get NFS UG3, at least next gen.
I dunno about NFS but your anger goes from 0 to 60 in about a second. Calm down, it's only a game. I haven't been impressed with NFS games in recent years but I LOVE Burnout - it's the similarities to Burnout that finally convinced me to give NFS a try on the Wii U. Being like Burnout is >not< a bad thing :)
Only people who can prove what the wiiu can do is nintendo because third parties are inconsistent.
Of course Most Wanted would looks better on the wii U overall. That's a given. The wii U has more RAM(2 gigs), 32 MB embedded eDRAM and unified shaders. So Technically, The wii U hardware is more capable in terms of graphics and textures. As for the Frame rate, it won't be much better than the 360/PS3 version. If you ask me, I prefer better frame rate/smooth animation over graphics any day.
what is the FPS on this game? 30 or 60?
Of course 60FPS but it won't be a constant 60fps though. Something I noticed about the wii U in some of their games.
@jacksheen, I highly doubt it'll be anywhere near 60fps. It will be capped at 30fps just like the other two console versions.
RAM doesn't really affect GFX that much.
Stop crying they got these results using an Engine optimised for 7 years on ps3 ect when you see games using engines that are gpgpu focused then you will see a massive difference,they said the night time is their best to date ?
The big advantage is the GPGPU (and what you can do with advanced shaders) and the 1GB RAM. But it's bottle-necked by the low bandwidth - which means more fidelity but the same resolution and framerate as current gen. Compared to PS360 you win some and lose some. This is a PS360 v1.25. Nothing more.
WiiU gpg has 32MB eDRAM thats 140GB of bandwidth and thats just the 32MB of eDRAM the wiiu has around 200GB of bandwidth very powerful.
You are watching the PS4 presentation? Want to contribute anything to what you just said?
Shut up and Give me burnot game for PS4!
I agree, give NEED FOR SPEED game/ not slap on BURNOUT title on need for speed game claiming its need for speed but in reality it's REALLY BURNOUT.
Next gen burnout FTW
ps4 incoming!!!!!! wh0 cares lol
Wii U is a good console it just needs more first party titles and third party support. The only way this is going to happen is by selling Wii U. Developers wont touch a system or break their necks to learn the ins and outs of new hardware if there is only a few Wii U's out there. Its all about market share. It seems to me Nintendo may have to take a lesson from MS and buy some developers off so they can make a port or original titles for their struggling new platform. Before its too late. Their loosing steam.
